Nebraska Women in Journalism by Eileen M. Wirth Douglas County Historical Society (DCHS) will feature Nebraska author Eileen M. Wirth's book From Society Page to Front Page: Nebraska Women in Journalism at our June 24th Page from Our Past author event taking place from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the DCHS Library Archives Center. The program focuses on history-based authors, both of fiction and non-fiction, and is held the fourth Tuesday of each month in the evening. A Page from Our Past is a casual and intimate roundtable discussion, where the audience has the opportunity to get up close and personal with the authors. Each program concludes with a book signing and time to meet one-on-one with the featured author. Eileen M. Wirth is a professor and chair of the Department of Journalism, Media and Computing at Creighton University. She never set out to be a groundbreaker for women in journalism, but if she wanted to report on social issues instead of society news, she had no alternative. Her years as one of the first women reporters at the Omaha World-Herald, covering gender barriers even as she broke a few herself, give Wirth an especially apt perspective on the women profiled in this book: those Nebraskans who, over a hundred years, challenged traditional feminine roles in journalism and subtly but surely changed the world.
